    I have the same problem with my 2007 Sonata Limited except it is on the passenger side. It is very distracting and I am disappointed that has not been addressed.

    I have the same problem with my 2006 Sonata. The driver's side visor hinge broke and now it is hanging. I have had two plastic pieces have broke in the last month (one of which is the visor's hinge...the second is the center console's latch). It is making me rethink my car (so far runs great...the interior leaves me cold).

    I have the same problem with my 2006 Sonata. The the visor would not stay up and the hinge broke. Now my visor light doesn't work. I have it rigged up with wiring from ear buds into the sunglasses holder. It is really annoying and dangerous that I can't use it to see when the sun is blinding me. I am going to take it into the dealership and see what they say. There should definitely be a recall though if this many people have had this problem.

    I have the same problem with the sun visor on the driver's side. The dealership tells me it should be covered under the warranty and they are fixing it this weekend.

    I have a ford explorer and my hinge is now totally broken. At first it cracked, then wouldn't stay up all the way, the plastic mirror hinge also broke and today the hinge broke in lots of pieces. My warranty is over, can you order a new hinge???? I've been looking and can't find anything.

    The "hing" on my 2006 Sonata broke today. I simply flipped the driver's side visor down as I've done many times before, heard a snapping sound, and now the visor won't stay put in either position. Apparently the inside grip of the viisor flap was too great, and the plastic shaft that goes into the visor flap broke. I could see this by pulling the visor slightly away. I cannot figure out how to remove the plastic plate covering the attachment of the visor rod where it connects to the interior roof. I'll have to take it to the dealer. I hope it's covered by the warrarnty. Anyone get theirs repaired yet? Details?

    Did you have to pay to have it fixed or was it covered under a recall or warranty?

I have a 2007 Sonata and the driver's side sun visor broke. I called the dealership where I purchased the car, and was told that they only cover it for 5 years/60,000 miles. So if your's is broken, get it in there before the warranty expires. Otherwise the cost is around $80 for the visor unit.

I just purchased a used 2006 sonata, and have had the same problem since the day I test drove the car and mentioned it to the salesman about having read about the problem online. Now they say they can’t fix because the warranty is just past the 60,000 mark –of course I bought the car with 62,000 miles on it already, Hyundai is probably just waiting till someone gets hurt when the driver visor falls down and causes an accident, I guess Hyundai hasn’t been paying attention to what happened to TOYOTA?

UGH! are there instructions anywhere online, on how to disassemble the damn "defective-hyundai" part and repair it yourself?

I have sun visor prob also. 2007 hyundai sonata se. Sun visor wont stay up on driver or passenger side. I currently have velcro on them which does not stick in the heat of the summer time. and the dealer...

As they work on friction you may be able to
compress the material on the outside which will then give the inside more grip.
Put a cloth around the top of the visor to protect the material and use Mole grips with the half circle jaws or pliers of the same construction grips to squeeze the area around where the rod enters the visor

Other option is a wreckers yard?

Sun Visors won't stay up.

Bring it back to the dealer. That happened to mine and they replaced it. Also had problems with the drivers seat. It would not go back & forth. Dealer fixed.

Sun visor on driver's side won't stay up or all the way down. 2006 Sonata the sunvisor will not stay up or all the way down. It just flaps back and forth, I have to put double sided tape on it for it to...

If under 60,000 miles, take it to the dealer for replacement - free of charge. Both sun visors on my 2006 Hyundai Sonata did the same thing and had them both replaced, but now out of warranty and driver's side has done it again so I'll have to pay to have it fixed. Looking for a used one online now. I guess this is just a defect in that particular model.

Sun visor on driver's side won't stay up or all the way down. 2006 Sonata

This works on any visor. Obtain a small clamp as used in wiring harnesses. On the shaft end of the visor, 1/2 inch from the end, install the clamp around the visor and the shaft. Drill a hole through the visor for the clamp screw and tighten as needed. I might be a redneck, but it works!!
